Hi Brian, Sure. I'm just texting with Baohua, setting up a time for tomorrow morning to discuss how we should start the work. We will send out our suggestions to tsc list for further discussion. Does that sounds good?
As mentioned in previous threads, mailing list will still be the primary comm tool. So yes, please set up a list for TWGC. What about naming it as 'Hyperledger-china-techical' with a address as 'hyperledger-twgc@...
Again, thanks all for make the workgroup happen.

主题:Re: [Hyperledger Project TSC] Technical Working Group, China
Thanks Victor, and thank you Baohua and Charles. This was approved in today's TSC call. Victor, Charles, and Baohua, let's talk next about the right communications forum to use to support the working group. Happy to set up another
mailing list if that's desired.

Thanks Brian for the nomination, I found no reason to decline it:-)
I’m happy to have a chance to serve the community and will try my best to make it better.

Based on the positive response to this from the community, I cleaned up the language just a little bit and created a page for the Working Group on the Wiki:
I'd like to propose that we begin with three members of the working group. I'd like to nominate the following individuals, based on some prior conversations, but of course depending upon their willingness to do this:
* Baohua Yang <yangbaohua@...>
* CHARLES Cai (蔡栋)
Of course more participants will be able to get involved in the forums that the WG decide are their officially supported forums - be it a mailing list, a WeChat group, or some other tool. The point is that these three represent the bridge between both worlds.
We can discuss at the TSC phone call in a few hours. Charles, Bauhoa, Victor, let me know if you want to decline the nomination, in which case we can call out for other volunteers.

Dear TSC members,
The interest from Chinese developers and companies in Hyperledger is really impressive. Both Chris and I have been there recently, and I know many of you on this list are either based there or travel there on a regular basis. At least 21 of our sponsoring
members are headquartered in China, and many more (like IBM) have active blockchain development efforts there. We also know how challenging it can be to bridge the time zone, linguistic, and cultural divides between developer communities in the region and
the rest of the world. The Linux Foundation is starting to get feet on the ground there (we now have a business development guy in Hong Kong and will be bringing on some technical community talent there too), and of course we have a WeChat channel for the
HL community being monitored by LF staff. But I'd like to find a way to connect more directly with the technical community who may find the timing of TSC calls difficult and the language barriers in using email a challenge, and help them feel supported and
comfortable, but without creating a split community.
So to address this, I'd like to propose that we set up a "Technical Working Group, China":
Mission: The TWGC is a bridge between the global Hyperledger community, and the emerging technical user and contributor community in China and the greater China region, including Hong Kong and Taiwan. It is responsible for growing the Hyperledger developer
community in China by responding to new user questions, helping with first-level triage of community-reported bugs or other issues, helping demonstrate to new developers how to report bugs or file pull requests, and pointing motivated developers towards the
project roadmaps and development initiatives at the global Hyperledger web sites. It should also make sure to expose new users to the broad range of projects at Hyperledger.
Governance: It would be Chaired by two or three developers (who could be TSC members but don't have to be) who are appointed by the TSC, and re-appointed every 6 months to keep it fresh. No formal votes are taken, so no formal membership in the WG beyond those
Communications: This WG would have their own method of communication that could include whatever they feel would be most appropriate: email list, WeChat channel, Slack channel, or something else - so long as it's recorded and archived somehow, and open to anyone
who wants to join. The Chairpersons are responsible for ensuring a productive, harmonious tone on these channels.
Reporting: This WG would report on its activities once a month to the TSC, including any issues that need addressing from a governance, process, community devtools, or other community-wide angle. The report should include some measure of activity and measure
of how well new participants are being welcomed in.
Thoughts? I'm happy to talk about this on tomorrow's TSC call, though there's not a big need to rush the approval of this that quickly. But approval in the next few weeks would be terrific. We're thinking of doing something similar from a marketing perspective
too, fwiw. Thanks,
Executive Director, Hyperledger
